Conor McGregor says Floyd Mayweather is ‘afraid of fighting’
Retired boxer Floyd Mayweather said last month that he was moving on from a potential megafight against UFC champion Conor McGregor – a bout that would surely generate obscene amounts of money – claiming that he tried to make the fight happen but that the two sides couldn't agree.
McGregor, meanwhile, has maintained that he's willing to fight – or box – Mayweather under any set of rules, so long as Mayweather brings him a massive payday. The Mayweather-McGregor fight seems like it'll never happen, but reporters keep asking both fighters about a potential meeting, and they keep talking.
In a Q&A session with LAD Bible, McGregor warned Mayweather to stop “dropping his name” or he'll show up at Mayweather's front door.
Via MMA Mania:
“Floyd is afraid of fighting. Floyd doesn't want to fight. Floyd wants a boxing match. And I've already said ‘No problem. Get my [expletive] money!' and when he gets my money then we can box in this boxing match under these set of specific rules that will keep you alive. So, I'm here.
Where's my money? Because if you keep dropping my name and you haven't got my money then I am going to show up at your front door. So we will see. But Floyd does not want to fight me. Floyd wants a match under a specific set of rules. I don't need rules. So I'm open. Let's see what happens. Right now it is just talk.”
